I am expecting a new baby in May, and I'm starting to get worried about what to do with DS at night. He is almost 16 months old now, and has been cosleeping with us at night since birth. (For the past 6 months he has been taking naps in his crib. Before that I carried him for most of his naps.)

I am starting to get worried about what to do when the new baby arrives. I want to get DS used to whatever we are going to do BEFORE new baby is here, because I don't want him to feel like s/he is displacing him. We all 3 (husband, DS and I) sleep in a queen size bed, and DS moves around so much that I don't trust him with a newborn in the bed. We can't afford to get a bigger bed and don't have the space in our (very small) bedroom to put another bed on the floor.

So, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get DS sleeping on his own within the next 6-7 months? We are not willing to try CIO of any form.

Thanks!!!
